Ed Sheeran Fans Angry After QLD Rail Track Works Last Night
Select Ed Sheeran fans were left with a sour taste in their mouths after his first Brisbane concert last night, with Queensland Rail planned track works delaying their journey home.
As concert-goers left a packed Suncorp Stadium, may were surprised to realise that trains between Northgate and Petrie stations were being replaced by buses - adding major delays.
Both the Caboolture / Sunshine Coast and Redcliffe lines were affected.
Caboolture, Redcliffe Peninsula, Sunshine Coast lines: From 9.30pm tonight, buses will replace trains between Northgate to Petrie as we carry out planned maintenance on the network. Please allow extra travel time: https://t.co/Raddmb4mI9— Queensland Rail (@QueenslandRail) March 19, 2018
While Queensland Rail did publicise the track works, some passengers were still angered that such work would be done at the same time as a major event in the city.
There are no planned maintenance work scheduled to interfere with tonight's second Ed Sheeran concert.
